Which organizations can issue official donation receipts?

Only Canadian registered charities or other qualified donees may issue official donation receipts that qualify for charitable tax credits.


Although qualified donees may issue official donation receipts, they are not required to do so. Ask if there are any circumstances where you won’t receive an official donation receipt. You can’t claim a charitable tax credit or deduction unless you have an official donation receipt.
